New Years Eve doesn't have to be a huge party night. Why not make it a romantic evening with someone you truly care for?
You don’t have to spend a fortune to make it a special evening.
Here's the plan: make sure the setting is romantic. A few candles will go a long way to make it right. If you have a fireplace or an outside fire pit, then you are home free. Just add a few warm blankets and you’re done, except for the eats.
Smoked salmon is a most under-appreciated food. You do not have to buy it by the pound, just three or four slices per person will do nicely.
Never miss a local story.
It can make an elegant setting and is delicious. You have the choice of thin-sliced cold smoked salmon, or filets of hot smoked; both are scrumptious .
As for the bubbly, why not go for a wonderful and inexpensive bottle of Italian prosecco? Find one that is not too sweet, and you will not regret it.
SMOKED SALMON NEW YEAR’S EVE
1 bottle cold Italian prosecco
1 package smoked salmon
1 cup crème fresh (sub sour cream cut with a few drops of buttermilk)
Open the smoked salmon and separate the slices, roll or otherwise cut into attractive shapes, dot with the crème fresh, artfully toss on a few capers and chopped red onion. That’s it! Serve cold, along with equally cold glasses of prosecco.
